the importance of the relationship, the special relationship with israel. and this is a president that has frankly abandoned, thrown israel under the the bus. this is a president who has appeased the enemies of the united states, whether it's castro brothers, whether it's chavez or others and apologizes for the united states and when mitt romney is elected we're going to change that and get somebody in the white house with backbone who understands we have to support our allies and support our friends and frankly, oppose our adversaries and enemies. and the thing is here, you have a governor making tough decisions, but approval ratings are out 40%. and how does that translate? >> look, you know, the governor has inherited a very difficult situation, and, buts' making it better and his numbers are getting better and i think you'll see that his numbers continue to get better. people in florida are sophisticated and continue not to accept this. what we have right now is the best that the country has to offer. i have a seven-year-old son,'s going to be seven in december. for his sake, he deserv

the daylights out of them with his policies toward israel. i think the military vote, both active and retired, very significant here in florida. and i think the christian, pro-life, per-family vote is very big. i do think that. neil: florida is very close to my right now. separated by about 1,000 votes. i don't know what it is about the state. whoever wins it has to win by a few hundred votes. it is what it is. i'm wondering, if it is disclosed in the polls have some , the governor up by five points, probably not realistic, but certainly close to that. 81 percent of the precincts in. a lawsuit for mitt romney, i would imagine, would be fatal, what did not? >> you know, it's hard to say it would be fatal, but up put it this way. at that point you're looking for the polls. you hope there is still one at the carotid artery. he needs to win florida. if he doesn't he has to win both virginia and ohio. it could be a long night, or it could be all over by 11:00 tonight. is just one of those things. some surprises. i think the big surprise of florida has been the margin of victory for bill melson in
type of individual who is ready to stand very, very firmly by u.s. allies, particularly israel. and someone who is very different by nature with, compared with president obama. melissa: so what do you think he would do on day one that would stop iran in its tracks? >> he has himself said that he is ready to tough inch the sanctions which are already in place. and, i also believe that it would send sufficient signals to tehran they need to capitulate their nuclear program. they have absolutely no opportunity to once more use the delaying tactics to give some kind of negotiations in order to gain time. let's not forget. right now president obama's government is engaged in secret talks with iran. all that sends the wrong signals to the regime in tehran because they believe they can gain time having this kind of negotiations. melissa: i hear you but, say mitt romney were elected and came in with an iron fist. wouldn't that cause them to accelerate the timeline that we better do this quick and because the u.s. is not messing around and they get to the bomb quicker? >> regime has use
, the president has not visited israel once. the jewish commercially -- community -- we feel he doesn't have our back. romney has made a strong point that he will have our back. host: did romney's relationship with the jewish community come up? guest: as a candidate he talks about the fact that he has a personal relationship dating back to time and harvard with ande minister aniston netanyahu that will be benefit. he said the united states position towards israel will be complete support. it was not clear how he would respond if israel tried to take out nuclear facilities in iraq. i think republicans feel they have made some headway, particularly in florida with jewish voters. we will see. host: brian mooney has covered politics in massachusetts for decades. he has been with "the boston globe" since 1988 and has been a political columnist. right now he goes by the title reporter. a story you did last year when health care was a big issue. looking back on the health-care issue, you recall that he went to get his official portrait done. he would be at his desk wearing a business suit and tie. host

important foreign policy has become to them and particularly their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say every mailing we send, just about every mailing we sent out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem from the capital of israel and reinserted it or mentioned his call for israel to return to 67 border or mentioned the fact that his administration had slow walked sanctions against iran. those issues have real resonance among them. >> jonathan is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this steek or it for a long time, and thank you, ralph, for your excellents. he's the money and politics report enand the past president of the national prez club. what did you see yesterday what does it mean for the country and. >> well, in 2010, we saw the secret money in the races took control of the senate and house. and all service said, it's going to be a foreshadow in the 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money with romney. romney had help with the super political action committees and outside groups. the money was even. obama wasn't swamped

the israel palestinian conflict, there was an attack, several hundred million what is called the denial of service attack. i think that is an example of something that reflects how prolific these are. host: let's look at a story from -- guest: that is significant and enter a couple of ways. the sheer magnitude of it is something that redefines paradigm when it comes to conflict and how we fight each other. in 2007 in estonia during a two week. , i do not know if you'll remember a massive cyber attack that resulted in not just infrastructure being taken down such as military or something uniquely defense, but even more severely, atms, gas pumping equipment, things that really impacted everyday people. i think when you saw that, even though it was five years ago and you see it now on a greater magnitude, it really illustrates the increasing importance that is needed on this issue. host: president obama took to the pages of "the wall street journal" on the threat he sees from cyber attacks. here is a story from a few days ago. what is the government impose a concerned about cyber? guest: t

to egypt. right now egypt is threatening israel. egypt is threatening the region because of the arabs spring. we have to rethink the dollars we're spending the egypt. we have to say these dollars are for maintaining a security and a piece. if you are not participating, you do not get them. we have to continue our commitment in foreign policy to israel. israel is our strongest ally. it is our sister country. we need to do everything we can to fulfil our commitment. the military aides we still is a real is that right here in america. when you look at the arab spring, there was a lot of hope that this would be continuing democracy, and we're falling into what has become not secular governments, but religious governments, and we need to be gathering up all of our allies and be making a firm statement that this region needs to be statement -- stabilized. we need to protect the people who serve and our state departments, not in all facets, whether ngo's the state department. it cannot procure them, they should not be there. >> i would like to redirect this back to the representative. he spo
the destruction of israel and the destruction of the united states -- when a mad man speak, listen and pay attention. that was the problem with the obama administration. they did not pay attention and a tragedy ensue. whinnied members of congress that will ask tough questions, and we did. >> the portion of the debate where we will allow you to make the 32nd closing statement. we begin with jim graves. >> thank you. our country is on a course toward a train wreck, if fiscal train wreck. we have to stop it before it happens. if we do not deal with it it will deal with us, and it will be in not good outcome. we have seen that michele bachmann has been in congress six years. she has not been able to curb the cost curve and has not been able to stop the escalation and spiralling of the debt. i'm a business person who will come to congress and make things happen, bring people together. i'm a fiscally conservative and i'll make this congress work and do the heavy lifting. we will not raise taxes on in a class, never on the middle- class. we will make this happen. >> you have 30 seconds. >> i want

their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say every mailing we sent out, but just about every mailing that we sent out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem as the capital of israel from his platform and then belatedly reinserting it, or it mentioned his call for israel to return to '67 borders, or it mentioned the fact that his administration had slow-walked sanctions against iran. and those issues have real resonance among pro-israel evangelicals. >> jonathan saw hasn't is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this sector for a long time, and thank you, ralph, for your comments. he is the money and politics reporter for bloomberg, and he's also the past president of the national press club. what did you see yesterday, and what does it mean for the country? >> well, in 2010 we saw all this secret money into the races, and the republicans took control of the senate and the house, and all observers said this is just going to be a foreshadowing of 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money as romney. romney had help with some of the
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n

pulonium is found, it will caused an uproar. they have been saying israel poisoned the palestinian leader. even if no poison is found, it will hardly lay to rest the rumors. >>> our fifth story "outfront," paula broadwell's next chapter. she ended david petraeus' career. she made the cover of "people" magazine "sex, lies, and spies." a great picture, but not one she ever wanted to see. what is her next move? suzanne kelly, intelligence correspondent, and spoke with broadwell's brother today. what did he have to say? >> we were told that she is really focused right now on restoring the trust between her and her husband and trying to protect her two sons from all of the publicity that has come along with the public outing of the affair. they have put out very different images that she has showed. seen first here on cnn. the images in tighter outfits, shorter dresses. these pictures that her family are putting out are portraying her as in her role as a mother and book author. >> pretty amazing to see. and she obviously authorized her brother to do this, right? she's -- she wants him to put t

from russia, from israel, all over. this is, if i may say, so the hottest ticket in town. this party is going to continue until 4:00 in the morning and i hope the votes are in earlier than that so i can get to bed. >> i hope so too, guys. he also reiterated the uk/u.s. special relationship as as special as ever. plenty more on that in the days to come. they're about to start serving the oreo mcflurry, i have to go. >> thanks so much. kelly in london. we want to report that mitt romney has taken georgia. nbc news projecting mitt romney the winner in georgia. coming up next, a number of polls about to close at the top of the hour. >> we're back with more of "your money, your vote" on this election night 2012. from local communities to local businesses. the potential of yelp unlocked. nyse euronext. unlocking the world's potential. to a currency market for everyone. the potential of fxcm unlocked. nyse euronext. unlocking the world's potential.

's all this controversy about whether or not israel is going to go to war with iran. when president obama spoke about the big yellowbird i don't think he was talking about the big yellowbird i think that he was talking about big bird on tv. chinese oriented people referred to as yellow. china has the largest population on earth, a billion people. they have so many people that the force women to have abortions. they have no respect for human rights at all, and china is friends with iran. china is trading partners with iran. if we have israel go to war with iran, then we are going to have to deal with an angry china, and i think that of really big problem, and we have to put a stop to it and negotiate peace. as i sit in the opening statement, i feel that our biggest problem is the deficit, but i believe that the reason why we haven't been able to lower the national debt is because our political system is broken, and we need to fix it or this will continue whether we have a republican or democrat in the presidency or in the majority of congress, and it is why constitutional amendment with th
